Interest in a Bricklink missing/spare pieces bulk buy?
I'm sure you all have sets sitting around that are missing one or two pieces no longer available on Lego's spare pieces system. You've found those pieces on Bricklink, but they cost 10p and the min. buy is £10, and shipping would be £5, etc, and you thought it wasn't worth it.
I was just helping my brother find the pieces for a second-hand Technics motorbike he was given by his school's Mindstorms club. All the missing/substituted pieces could be found on Lego's customer service site, except for the fuel tank cover, a printed piece which is 'out of stock'. On Bricklink it's pretty cheap, but almost all the shops have a min. buy price or silly shipping.
So, that brings me to my main point. Are there enough of us out there to club together, make a list of all the one or two spare pieces we each want to buy and get them in one lot? Someone more experienced in Bricklink could work to get the best price (aren't there some programs for optimising your basket?) and then distribute them out by mail (everyone could pay an tiny bit extra to cover the cost of an envelope and stamps).
What do people think? If enough people are interested to make this serious, I'll start a new thread where you can actually list the parts you need.
(Of course, if there's a really obvious way to get those frustrating pieces that I've just completely missed, let me know...)
